The Guy I'm Not Dating E-book and Free Books!

When personal trainer Kara Richardson stumbles upon charming young deli owner, Gabe Paolino--new to town and quite available--she realizes she couldn't have chosen a worse time to take a vow against dating.

Before I say more about the above novel, I want to announce that the winner of the e-copy of Healing Love, by Jennifer Slattery, is:


and the winner of the e-copy of my new release, Local Girl, is:

This week I'm re-featuring my novel, The Guy I'm Not Dating, because it has just released in e-book format. By way of celebration, I'm going to give away a copy of the e-book.

Here's a quick take on the story's plot:

"Yowza!" exclaims Kara Richardson when she sees the handsome proprietor of the new delicatessen in town, Gabe Paolino—who soon expresses mutual interest. This would be the start of a perfect love story, except for one thing—Kara has vowed to stop dating until she feels God's leading.

But when humorous circumstances send Kara and Gabe on a road trip to Florida, hope springs anew. Even with Kara's flirtatious coworker Tiffany—"a hyena in heels"—along for the ride, the uncouple begins a lively journey that could change their paths forever.

This memorable, charming story of love's persistence captures the honor of waiting on God's timing, and the adventure of finding the perfect guy to not date.

The book can be purchased in e-book format via the following button:

"Knowing God is NEVER late, makes it EASIER to wait". One of my favorite quotes!
I was 27 before I got married. I thought that was old to be getting married (I am 63 now). But God was waiting on the perfect timing for us to meet. A couple that was mutual friends of both of ours set my husband and me up on a blind date. The 28th of this month will be our 36th wedding anniversary!

This book sounds hilarious! When my husband and I got married we were both in the Air Force. He already had orders to go to West Germany. We went ahead with the wedding and prayed that God would cancel his orders so we could stay together. After the wedding I put in for a "join spouse" assignment to the base he was being sent to. There were three attempts by the Air Force to get us to the same base. Finally the morning Ted was supposed to get on the plane to leave we got a call from the assignments office. When I answered the sergeant said, "I hope he hasn't left." Then he went on to explain that they finally had it set up for us to be going to the same base at the same time. Then he finished up the call by explaining that with 3 changes they needed to cancel the original orders and issue new ones. God answered our prayer with the cancellation, but He sure waited until the last minute.

Oh, I love that seat-of-the-pants story, Debbie! I was afraid you were going to say your hubby's orders got cancelled and then your orders to go to West Germany came through. I like your ending MUCH more.

After being in what seemed like a hundred weddings (maybe an exaggeration 😉), I just wondered when would be my time. I waited on God's timing and married the man I was supposed to a few months before my 29th birthday.
